Witness the vampiric post-apocalypse of Code Vein.
Code Vein is promising some very interesting things, as it melds the challenging nature, combat, and design of Soulslike titles with the look and aesthetic of animes, to deliver a decidedly Japanese Souls experience. Of course, it’s trying to carve out an identity of its own, and in a new video released by Bandai Namco, it displays some of that aesthetic.
It’s essentially the opening cinematic of the game, and it’s looking excellent. Showcasing the game’s post-apocalyptic environments to showing glimpses of the characters to scenes of combat here and there – between both, the good and bad variety of vampires – it’s a pretty meaty look into what we can expect from the upcoming RPG. Of course, there’s no gameplay in there, but it’s still worth a watch- take a look below.
Code Vein is due out on September 27 for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC- take a look at the game’s system requirements on PC through here. Meanwhile, you can also check out our recent interview with the developers to get more details on the game.
